    One of our members has a Skywatcher Quatro reflector for sale.

    An 8ins with carbon fibre tube, he has upgraded and motorized the focuser and bought a coma corrector. The scope comes in a custom-made case which makes it a little unwieldy but keeps it safe. Due to its size it requires a substantial mount HEQ5 or above.

    Asking price: “mid-three figures, but offers will be considered”

    If interested, please email and we will put you in touch with the seller.

    Hi all,

    Im starting out in astrophotography interested in nebula, my equipment for this is a follows:

    Skywatcher BD ED80
    Skywatcher HEQ5 Pro
    Orion Focal Reducer Corrector 0.85
    ZWO ASI 120MC USB2
    Orion Mini 50mm Guide Scope
    Rasberry Pi 3 running iAstroHub
    10″ Andriod Tablet

    Im looking to add an imaging camera to this and after some reading have come up with a ZWO ASI 178MC-Cool. Im thinking this should be a good fit for my ED80. Does anyone have experience or ideas about setups with similar equipment?
